I am still playing with my Holiday Mini pre-order. Stampin' Up! has mailed the 2010 Holiday Mini and you should be receiving your Holiday mini in the mail if you are one of my customers. My local club members will receive their mini with their club orders which will be arriving today and tommorow. On today's card, I used the Northern Flurries Textured Impressions Folder for the background.

Stampin' Up! Northern Flurries Christmas Card Seasonal Sentiments Big Shot

Picture Detail:

Stampin' Up! Northern Flurries Christmas Card Detail Big ShotDetails: I embossed Marina Mist Cardstock (4 1/4 x 11" score at 5 1/2") with the Northern Flurries Textured Embossing Folder (120602). Then I sponged the embossed snowflakes with a sponge dauber and Stampin' Up! Whisper White Craft Ink and then added sptitzed with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. Next I added Basic Jewels Rinestones to the center of the snowflakes and tied a piece of Whisper White Organza Ribbon on the side next to the fold. For my focal point, I stamped the saying from Seasonal Sentiments (121130) in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White (1 5/8" x 2 3/8") and then layered onto Cherry Cobbler (1 7/8" x 2 5/8") and River Rock (2 1/8" x 2 7/8"). I added this to the base card with dimensionals.
